Strengths This thing is a mowing machine. Mowing that used to take 4-6 hours is now done in an hour and 45 minutes. It never runs out of power when mowing and the power seems matched correctly when I have the FEL and BB on it while doing dirt work.
Weaknesses It is always nice to have a little more power, and that is the case when using the DX25E with the loader or box blade. However, I think this motor is well proportioned to the size of the tractor.
The "safety switch" on the seat was disabled after a few hours. What a pain! I also learned not to let it run below a half tank of fuel on the hills out here.
Overall I really like the little Farmall. While I thought about purchasing a larger model, this one really does everything I ask it to do and because of its smaller tires and wide stance, it does not seem as likely to roll over as some of the other competition. I got a good deal from the dealer and 0% for 48 months, so I plan on enjoying it for quite a while to come.
